When you have issues with the appearance of your smile, you may be stuck wondering just what exactly you can do to fix it. Cosmetic dentistry presents you with a lot of options, but which one is the best for you and your smile?
Today we’ll take a look at just one of the options offered here at Smiley Dental Buckner in Dallas, Texas, – dental bonding.
What is it?
Dental bonding is the process of using a pliable resin to fill in gaps, breaks, chips, or fractures in your teeth. It can also be used to build up teeth that’ve suffered from the negative effects of bruxism. Once hardened and polished, the resin used in bonding looks just like a natural tooth.
How does it work?
You’ll come in for an appointment where Dr. will evaluate your bonding needs. Then, your tooth will be prepared to receive the bonding material. This involves making sure the surface of the tooth is free of debris so the bonding material holds as it should.
Then, the pliable resin is molded until it matches the rest of your teeth. It’s polished and shaded to look just like your real teeth and after a zap of UV light, you’re ready to leave the office with an incredible, all-new smile.
If bonding sounds like the solution for your smile problems, call us today at 972.616.0060 to see how we can help!
